One of the reasons for the strangeness of the sub atomic world imo, is the preturbations in ambient time due to changes in gravity( cos everything in the universe is moving all the time resulting in gravity changes at any point in the universe)

The sub-atomic world is a strange one and the only thing we know is that we think these strange properties are there. Where these properties come from is anyones guess. The other day I did watch a docu about a new science called quantum-biology. I order to make a cell work a certain sub-atomic particle is used by nature to make the growth of a cell posible. The nature of this particle is that it can be everywhere at the same time.
Incredible isn't it? I am sure there is still a lot discover about light and its applications... just like an other thing in nature which is around us in plenty.. water.
A flag for your interesting thread (couldn't resist)

Einstein's Relativity theories insist that something has to give (speed equals distance divided by time) and it cannot be the speed of light, since that speed is immutable.

He uses the words 'clocks' because that emphasizes the specifics of measurement of time from physical principles, and that is essential because prior to relativity, the universal assumption among physicists since Aristotle was that time was global, and universal, and needn't be examined further.
It is not.
Clocks are material systems and, as such, are vulnerable to the influences of the material systems that they exist as integral to. Take the gravity-time dilation claim. In this claim, relative field strength "slows down time" (which Einstein then transfers to acceleration as also slowing down time, since to a human observer acceleration and gravity can feel similar), but since Einstein uses the term "clock" instead of "time" his assertion cannot be truthfully said to violate the fundamental requirement of system coherence - which is a basic staple of reality that trumps indication regardless of what that indication is. What that means is that while gravitational field strength can certainly affect the dynamic properties of a mechanical clock - especially the extremely delicate mechanical properties of those clocks that have measured time progression since the first caesium standard went on line - time itself cannot be vulnerable to gravitational field strength and certainly not to the intermittent whims of simple acceleration. If that were the case, air travel would feature a lot more change on this planet than bringing people closer together, when one considers the scattered and relentless impact on the universal quantum of Now (or Planck Time) - as the quantized basis of ongoing progressive development within this or any other universal reality confine - of such burps and halts and skids that would be the result of so many violations of that quantized structure.
Then again, if you feel justified in embracing a solipsistic philosophy and declare reality to be your own little construct, then I've got nothing.
